I read with interest your stout defence of the PCA magazine recently. I received a complimentary copy of the December edition this morning. You are right they are trying hard to engage with the readership.

One item brought you to mind- Byteback, Ben Camm-Jones " Apples products are generally used by well-dressed,affluent, hip creatives ( or media types with kipper ties and interesting facial hair - and thats just the girls) "

See they can find interesting topics if they try.

Hi rowdy - thanks for the thought. Actually, I was also robustly bashing PCA for its decision the other day to lead the homepage with the startling news that Vista will be retailed in a box, so although I'm robust I'm not slavish or undiscriminating.

Actually, I'd argue with the generalisation you quote: Apple products are used by all sorts of people, including but not exclusively hip media types. I use Apple products at one of my regular workplaces but I do not have interesting facial hair.

I ,of course, pictured you as a well dressed, affluent, hip ( as in with it ) creative type. I would not do anything as indeliKate as to refer to body hair when talking to or about a lady.

almost every day, and I don't think I'm a hip creative - whatever that is.

I received two complimentary copies of the December magazine today.

PS I occasionally use a mac;-)

But do you wear fishy ties FE?

  rowdy 18:39 08 Nov 2006

FE - no I have never considered you to be hip creative, imaginative maybe but you lack the spark that creative folk have.

ed-o, see what being a creative type brings,twice the good things in life. Are you female if not the item did not concern you.

I enjoy Kate B's contributions and admit I sought to provoke her into a response. Even old northerners recognise talent.

*grumpy* I haven't had a free copy of the magazine. Nor do I wear fishy ties.

" Are you female if not the item did not concern you. "

I haven't read it, yet. When I do, I shall decide on both things.;-)

I have a spare one or two you can have :-)
